If you know us, there is nothing more to say. But there are moments when you are reminded of the bonds of friendship and this weekend for me was one of those moments. I blow into town for a few short days to celebrate my brother's wedding and my Sheri and Ang are there to lift me up.
They drove from what I know consider "the ends of the earth", living in Juneau will do that to a person, to see me, celebrate with me, bring me Wendy's, return my rental car, see my Hillis Family, take me for ice cream!, have friends come stay with their boy so they can drive me to the airport at 3 am so I didn't have to stay there all night. Thanks truly isn't enough. I love you girls and am so glad that boys, jobs, life choices and changes and miles have not separated our hearts.
It was a whirlwind of a weekend . . . left Juneau on May 10th at 8 pm ish, arrived in MI on May 11th at 11 am ish and never stopped, well, until that nap at Aunt Mary and Uncle Phil's. Anyway, we surprised Aaron with bringing Denise home for the wedding.
Who says cow print isn't fashionable? Thank you to one of the twins for this pic.
Mother looking fabulous. Denise, mom and I had our hair and make-up done for the occasion. Thank you to Danielle for making us all look fab!
While Danielle was making us look fab, I got some snuggle time.
When it was time to get the boys dressed, since it was a little crowed inside Gram's, I laid out the suits on the lawn and they got ready in the great outdoors. They were troopers all day. How do you ask three boys to stay clean all day long when it is gorgeous outside? But somehow, they managed. I was dirtier then they were!
The finished product! I will say that they are serious boys. When I first tried to take a picture I told them to make silly faces. They replied "Naw, but we'll be serious and you can take out picture". Which is what I had wanted in the first place, I just didn't think I would get it. Guess all I had to do was ask.
Here they are again in action . . . their hands behind their backs cracks me up! They did that all on their own.
My favorite pic. Just love this one of ARB. Thanks Aunt Mary!
I just like this pic.
Here comes the bride . . .

Uncle Josh and Eleni two-steppin'. Josh was patient enough to two-step with all of us. "Slide, don't hop."
The wedding cake.
Where's Lino? The only man brave enough to get on out there and dance.
Today, the first ever Disney Cruise Ship sailed into Juneau. This is a big deal and Bob humored me with a walk along the docks so that I could check it out. I also got to play a bit more with the camera.
At least for a week or so . . . Bob has been doing battle with the fish tank lately. Seems like there is always an algae bloom goin' on in there. The guys a Wee Fishie had told him to cover up the tank and leave it that way for a week. He finally gave in and closed them up (we'll see if he makes it a week). Hopefully it will be all cleared up when the cover comes off.
